Hello to everybody,

I am just trying to get myself acquainted with DeleD CE.

I have an initial question which you may find amusing but I really need a solution to this.

In front, top and side view when I try to create some primitives like cylinder,
cube, cone etc. the generated primitive has a very thin and light black edge
that nearly blends with the grids. It is becoming a tedious to find the primitive
again after de-selection by differentiating its thin and light black edge from the
grid lines. My screen resolution is 1920X1080, which I guess is normal these
days and many people work at this resolution or even higher. My question is
how can I change the thickness and color of the lines that make up the edges
of the primitives that I am drawing within the front, top and side view of the
DeleD CE workspace ? I want the edge lines of the primitive to be thicker and bolder.

Is there anyway I can draw primitives and do all my modelling work directly in
the perspective view ?

Thanks,

Hello Dave,

Thank you for the detailed reply using screenshots. I should have inspected those options more minutely before jumping over for help. I thought those
were for the gridlines only. I wish there were option to change the thickness
of the lines along with their colors.

Thanks for the help .... cya around. ....

EDIT: Is there any option to select an object in the scene by clicking on the object in the perspective view directly and not using the scene inspector
panel ?

Awesome .... and I just discovered -> Ctrl + Shift + Left mouse button can be
used to select multiple objects in the scene simultaneously.
